EMB010 - HALO - Degree Zero Point Of Implosion


Published 2000


The fourth release from 2-piece improv sonic terrorists HALO takes their bastard mix of noisecore sludge and abrasive power electronics to new depths.
HALO deconstructs the sad carcass of Heavy Music with relentless efficiency, forcing it through a meat grinding power noise aesthetic to leave it shivering and wasted by the side of the road, begging for release.
Degree Zero Point Of Implosion mixes wall-of-noise dynamics with brutal cacophony - critically detuned bass lays down sheets of white noise and static, modulated into damaged doom riffs and atonal drones over thunderous snail-pace rhythms and throat-tearing catharsis.

Reviews

Reviewer: Natas Corpsegrinder - - January 10, 2005
Subject: Degree Zero is a must have album.
This album slips into the void between Guattari and Body of Light. And like those two other albums it has moments of cohesiveness, with almost song like structures, and some parts with noise just pounding away. Just because this album was not released by Relapse doesn't mean it's not on par with Halo's other albums. It's an excellent album, and I'm surprised it hasn't been re-released. It's been implied that Halo is the Godflesh of the new millenium and I can't find anything to disagree with about that. Halo is definately progressing and carrying the torch of twisted misery, while avoiding cliches of what is and what is not heavy. Simply put, if you're into the outer limits of what noisecore, industrial metal, or doom metal has to offer, then get this album now.
